Dr. Weil magic mushrooms are meant to reduce signs of aging.Dr. Andrew Weil is a mega celeb in the anti-aging skin care market. It doesn't hurt that he looks like the Grandfather we never had, and speaks in calming dulcet tones as he blankets you with medical know how and plugs natural ingredients for ailments and skin care.

His latest product line is based on the lowly mushroom. Dr. Weil has infused his Origins products --Mega-Mushroom Face Serum and the Mega-Mushroom Face Cream- with an Asian variety of mushroom. Dr. Weil calls this ingredient a "major breakthrough".

Origins cites studies that show radical improvement to dull, ashy skin and facial redness including Rosacea. More than 80% of those using the mushroom-infused product felt soothed and calmed.

Facial flushing is hard to treat, so please provide a comment if you've tried out any of Dr. Weil's magic mushroom products and serums.
